During Christmas, you can't approach a market, cafe or bar in Copenhagen without being met with the sometimes overwhelming yet delightful scent of clove, oranges, cinnamon, anis, burnt wine and strong booze. It is in our bones, and nobody up here could imagine Christmas without it.
In December Copenhagen is covered in Christmas trees, and going on a treasure hunt to spot the best ones it the perfect activity if you're looking to get in the right Christmas spirit. The granddaddy of Copenhagen Christmas trees is placed in the Copenhagen City Hall Square, but Frederiksberg City Hall Square and the Red Square in Nørrebro also have some spectacular trees.
If you're looking to get your Christmas shopping done, you've come to the right city. Christmas shopping in Copenhagen is a tradition for many families, and most stores are decorated with lights and pines and Christmas carols flowing through the speakers, to help you get in the right mood.
The historic garden is filled with thousands of glittering Christmas lights, the cutest wooden houses decorated with pine branches, and snow-covered trees to create that perfect Nordic Christmas atmosphere. Of course, Santa Claus and his reindeer will also be there to welcome everyone to the amusement park's fun rides and the cosy Christmas market.
